Most tooth issues involve infections that if left untreated can spread easily to the pulp of the tooth. The pulp is the inner portion of a tooth where blood vessels, connective tissue and nerves reside. When the infection worsens, it can get to the root, which causes pain. Our Ajax Ontario root canal specialists at Ajax Dental Centre Dr. Saeid Jafarpour, Dr. Kevin Kwong and Dr. Azza Elhaddad can examine each patient’s teeth to decide whether or not they require root canal treatment.
More About Root Canals
When the inner portion of the tooth becomes diseased, it can bring many issues to the patients including sensitivity and pain. A spreading infection can cause pus pockets to develop leading to dangerous abscesses. If they aren’t dealt with in a timely manner, they can lead to severe dental issues. Root canal treatment is a great way to remove diseased tissue and stop the spread of infection further. It also is used by you Ajax, ON root canal specialists in order to restore the tooth to good health and to prevent the need for tooth extraction.
With root canal treatment, the infected tissue is thoroughly removed and the area is disinfected. The root canals are reshaped during this procedure. The chamber and canals are then filled with a material and medication in order to prevent future infection. Most patients who have root canal treatment experience little to no pain.
We at Ajax Dental Centre specialize in restoring teeth that can last just as long as natural ones. The key to this success is with regular dental examinations and cleanings that help us to detect issues early on. Preventative care is the best way to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.
